I had to nip over to Fred's place on Saturday afternoon, to get front row seats for the end of the auction. I favour last minute bidding, in the hopes of lulling any other bidders into a false sense of security. In the event, it needed some swift work on the keyboard to ensure I won it.
A little more pricey than I was expecting, I must say.
The picture shows my new winch, sitting on the trolley, just before lifting it onto Lady Jane.
Thanks to John, the seller, for all the help loading it into the truck (no easy task). Thanks are also due to Fred and Duncan who helped hoist it onto Lady Jane.
Mostly, though, thanks to Seb for bringing it to my attention in the first place.
Next, I'll need some chain - lots of it.
